6. Social media tends to make your life too public.
Is it really important to upload those pictures from last night's party that you can barely remember taking?
Should all of your 1,000 plus Facebook friends really know (or care) about what event you are going to next week?
We tend to forget almost everything we do on social media is recorded in some way.
This can be problematic, as it could be possible for individuals we would rather not share things with (like parents or a potential employer) to see certain areas of our lives.
Even if you restrict who can view your social media account, it's important to question whether it's necessary or even safe, to reveal so much information about your life to individuals you barely know.
